In his weekly column in De Telegraaf, Hiddink has stated although their is no discussion between himself or the KNVB at the moment, he would like to put himself forward for the position.

The 67 year old held the position of national team boss between 1995 and 1998, guiding his side to the 1998 World Cup semi-finals during his time in charge.

Hiddink has been out of work since leaving Russian side Anzhi earlier this year, but has stated he has no plans to retire,and wants one more high reputation job.

Feyenoord boss Ronald Koeman is still the favourite to take over from Van Gaal, and will discuss his future with the Rotterdam side in the winter. Former Barcelona coach Frank Rijkaard, and current Netherlands assistant manager Danny Blind are also being considered for the job as the KNVB look to stick with a Dutchman.
